CRISTIN BARBU  Advisory Council

Cristin has served as a Science Teacher In South Los Angeles for over 23 years, and has also served as the Gifted Magnet Coordinator at John Adams Middle School for many years. He believes in providing students in Title 1 schools with a strong, well-rounded education with arts playing an important part.

He is confident that TYS’ program is extraordinarily beneficial for students, empowering them and building their confidence.  He is very proud that John Adams was the first Middle School to implement TYS and that, despite COVID school closures and quarantine in Spring 2020, enjoyed a great success with the students' online production of "Romeo & Juliet". He is equally proud that TYS' Virtual Program in Performance & Production Design was inaugurated at John Adams in Spring 2021.

Cristin has an engineering background, earned his Teaching Credentials at California State LA and UCLA, and is also a passionate musician and composer.
